my point was that part of what MAKES the ending a "happy" one, is that even though lelouch is dead, he would be happy to know that the people he loves are happy and safe in the better world he created for them
lelouch dying is made LESS sad, with the knowledge that he had, in fact, achieved what he wanted most of all
a better world for those he loves

if lelouch's actions end up KILLING the people he loves and wants to create a better world for, then he is not only dead
he dies knowing that the people he loves and wanted to protect, ended up dying because of his actions
its a total downer ending
a Pyrrhic victory from lelouch's personal prospective
